So how does it feel?? Can you eat without the worry of them popping out??? Gosh I cant wait.
Oh sure I can eat. I can eat anything anyone would usually eat with natural teeth. They are screwed onto the implants with tiny screws. They cannot be removed except by a dental professions with proper equipment.
The visit began in a rush since I am out of town they finished me in just 3 days. Monday I went in for a cleaning and impressions. First time I saw myself without my teeth. Ewe! LOL.
I then left and stayed at a motel until Thursday (yesterday). The day began at 8:30 and I wasn't finished until 3. They did a try in and the Doctor felt they needed to show more especially on one side. They called the ceramicist who had been there since 1 in the morning just for me. He redid them and they were still in their unglazed state. The bottoms were perfect from the beginning and needed no adjustments.
They did the next try in and the bar that holds the appliance kept making me gag and it was nearly impossible to talk. This bar is important though for as long as this is still attached any adjustments are possible. They kept asking me if I liked the color, shape, feel, bite, smile and had me go in the bathroom alone and smile and talk to myself.
In the end I was very pleased and I had the whole staff running in to see. They took so many photo's I felt like a movie star.
I am beyond happy. I have dark hair and a medium complexion and chose color B1. I thought A2 was too yellow and A1 wasn't as whiite as I wanted but close.
